Biancocelesti’s multi-service partner platform will provide a scene of the summer camp 2022 for 11 children from Sister Paola’s charity.
Football and solidarity are still the protagonists of the Olympic Stadium, where on the occasion of the Lazio-Greece Verona match, the Corporate Social Responsibility initiative of PlanetPay365 – multi-service platform owned by Planet Entertainment – SKS365 Group – was presented together with SS Lazio and non-profit organization So .Spe of Sister Paola.
The project, which was inaugurated before the kick-off, gives 11 children from the non-profit family homes a special ticket to participate in the club’s Summer Camp 2022. With the help of PlanetPay365, children – both boys and girls between 8 and 13 years – will be the main characters on the Abruzzo stage in Tagliacozzo (AQ) from July 3rd to 9th.
The donation will allow them to take advantage of the “Full Camp” formula, and each of them will receive a set prepared for the occasion by PlanetPay365 and So.Spe.
The goal of PlanetPay365 – which with this initiative continues the partnership with SS Lazio, which runs the Corporate Social Responsibility program – is to provide an opportunity to live a more general sports and training experience for children from families in difficulty, financially and socially.
The summer camps are actually dedicated to football (under the guidance of the instructors from the biancoceleste youth sector), but in addition to training and matches, they are also designed to give children the opportunity to have fun, make friends and live new experiences in a group, in an optics of inclusion and respect for diversity.
The summer camp’s special guests accompanied the players out on the pitch just before the match against Verona and received a facsimile of an “entrance ticket” for the summer stay. In June, there will be an “Open Day” with all the children in the So.Spe family homes, also open to the company’s employees: in this way, the latter will also be able to participate in the distribution of sports gadgets and other gifts, as well as organizing recreational activities.
“The initiative with SS Lazio and the So.Spe Foundation marks the first, as well as extremely significant phase of our global CSR project, which in the coming months will include many other initiatives implemented in Serbia, Austria and Malta, where SKS365 has its offices – he declares Brian Dean, CEO of Planet Entertainment – it is no coincidence that May 21 is World Day for Cultural Diversity, a moment of inclusion and respect for diversity. As a company that counts in-house employees from multiple cultures and dozens of different nationalities, the promotion of gender equality is a fundamental part of our mission, just as support for children in discomfort must also be supported through sport. For us, sport represents an opportunity to build new friendships, help children realize their dreams and give hope for a better future. With our CSR plan, we get in touch with the local communities in the countries where SKS365 is present, and with the help of our partners and the commitment of our employees, we provide support and resources to make these children’s dreams come true. I sincerely thank the precious support and cooperation of So.Spe and SS Lazio. I am convinced that this is only the first stage of a long and fantastic journey together ‘.
“In many years of activity with the fund – he explains Sister Paola, founder of So. Spe – this is the first time we’ve ever received such a gift. This summer, thanks to PlanetPay365, 11 children from our community will be the protagonists of a unique and unforgettable experience, Lazio Summer Camp, which will enrich them deeply and which will have a major impact on their development and personal growth. I hope this is the first of many other projects together with PlanetPay365 and SS Lazio, to nurture these young people’s dreams and help the less fortunate to make them come true ».
“Lazio again,” the president confirmed Claudio Lotito – wants to concretely affirm the values of solidarity and respect for the person who has always been part of Biancoceleste DNA. He wants to make it through the best vehicle, the sporting collection that has the power to break down any wall and any difficulty. Have fun for the girls and boys who are going to the summer camp: may it be a formative experience for them, but above all full of serenity, new friendships and light-heartedness. The smile and the desire to be together: that is it – Lotito concludes – that should never be taken from the youngest ».
